jQuery's fancyZoom and delayedObserver conflict


#1

Hello list,

I know this is more client-side stuff since I’m using Rails js helpers,
I
thought I would be posting here. http://pastie.org/379754 – the
delayedObserver simply doesn’t work when fancyZoom is activated (it
simply
fails silently). If I remove the fancyZoom related code, it works ok.
Here’s
a sample code: http://pastie.org/379754. Does anyone know why?

Thanks,

Marcelo.

Ok, here’s why:

fancyZoom hides the target div, and its show() method then creates a
duplicate of this DOM subtree. The problem is that it keeps the same
ids,
and we all know we can’t have elements with the same ID – thus, $() and
getElementById fail. The solution was to be more specific and select
like
this: $(’#zoom-content #id’), where #zoom-content is the name of the
duplicated div that fancyZoom creates, which is different from the
hidden
div.

Marcelo.
